Wisconsin: bill for quarry to excavate burial mounds “unlikely”

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says a bill that would allow quarry owners to excavate Ho-Chunk Nation burial mounds in Wisconsin to prove whether human remains are buried there is probably going nowhere.

Wingra Stone and Redi-Mix want to mine a 3-acre plot at its quarry north of McFarland, near Madison, Wisconsin. But the plot contains Ho-Chunk mounds and is on the state’s registry of protected burial sites.

The company wants to excavate the mounds to find out if human remains are really there in an effort to get the plot removed from the protected list.

The Ho-Chunk Nation believes human remains are indeed present.

Vos said Tuesday he has met with the Ho-Chunk and it’s unlikely the bill will come up for a vote.
